Title: Ways to improve the technology of constructing concrete hydraulic structures

Abstract

The authors state that there is a need for a critical analysis of the established technology of constructing massive concrete structures and for the search for new, cheap, faster, and less labor-intensive designs when constructing concrete dams. Improvement of the technology of constructing concrete hydraulic structures is possible, they say, by introducing the following suggestions: construction of massive structures mainly from a very stiff, low-cement concrete mix compacted by the vibrating roller method; use of poured self-compacting concrete mixes when constructing reinforced-concrete structural elements of hydrostations, water intakes, tunnel linings, etc.; and by development of the technology of delivering stiff concrete mixes by conveyors and their placement by rotary throwers when revetting slopes. This paper examines these elements in detail.
